Producers seeking higher yields and quality of crops can benefit of the power of SEIPASA. Nakar and Pirecris offer great expectations as phytosanitary control tools specially designed for Integrated Pest Management strategies.
The new natural insecticides Nakar and Pirecris contribute to control pests with the added value of obtaining ‘Zero Residues’ crops. Nowadays, agricultural producers must attend the increasingly restrictive legislation on active substances and toxicity, as well as take in consideration consumer demands, calling for a healthy eating. Their concern lies mainly in how to deal with whiteflies, aphids, thrips, caterpillars, beetles… maintaining at the same time quality and productivity, and obtaining residue free fruits. On this direction run many efforts of the Spanish company on the field of R&D.
Nakar is a natural insecticide with an excellent control by contact of soft-bodied insects in all stages of development, such as aphids, mealybugs, whiteflies and mites. Its formulation is based on a mixture of different purified vegetable oleins. The optimal selection of them means a translucent and completely stable product in low temperature conditions. After saponifying, the oleins allow the product to penetrate and fragment the lipoprotein matrix of the insect cellular membranes, causing dehydration and death. This product dissolves chitin exoskeleton, increases the effect of contact products and maximizes treatments’ adherence.
